IE problem fixed : Microsoft

Microsoft has said that an emergency security update has fixed a flaw in Internet Explorer that left millions of computers vulnerable to hacking and hijack


Microsoft released Security Update MS12-063  to address limited attacks against a small number of computers through a vulnerability in Internet Explorer versions 9 and earlier. The majority of customers have automatic updates enabled and will not need to take any action because protections will be downloaded and installed automatically. For those manually updating, we encourage you to apply this update as quickly as possible.

In addition to addressing the issue described in Security Advisory 2757760 , MS12-063 also resolves four privately disclosed vulnerabilities that are currently not being exploited.

Computers that are set to automatically update and install software will already be protected by the patch. Those users who manage their own updates are advised to download the fix as soon as possible from the Microsoft website.

“This vulnerability is being actively exploited by cyber criminals and getting worse every day.”
